CHAPTER

Overview
This chapter gives a basic idea about Computer Logical Organization starting with definition of signal, and its classifications.

n the modern world of electronic, the term Digital is generally associated with a computer

because the term Digital is derived from the way computers perform operation, by counting digits. For many years, the application of digital electronics was only in the computer system. But now-a-days, the digital electronic is used in many other applications. Following are some of the examples in which Digital electronics is heavily used. Industrial process control Military system Television Communication system Medical equipment Radar navigation

Signal
Signal can be defined as a physical quantity, which contains some information. It is a function of one or more than one independent variables. Signals are of two types. Analog Signal Digital Signal

Digital Signal
A digital signal is defined as the signal which has only a finite number of distinct values. Digital signal are not continuous signal. In the digital electronic calculator, the input is given with the help of switches. This input is converted into electrical signal which having two discrete values or levels. One of these may be called low level and another is called high level. The signal will always be one of the two levels. This type of signal is called digital signal. Examples of the digital signal are following. Binary Signal Octal Signal Hexadecimal Signal

Graphical representation of the Digital Signal (Binary)

The circuits that process that digital signal are called digital systems or digital circuits. Examples of the digital systems are following. Registers Flip-flop

Digital Number System


This section describes various digital number systems.

digital system can understand positional number system only where there are only a few

symbols called digits and these symbols represent different values depending on the position they occupy in the number. A value of each digit in a number can be determined using The digit The position of the digit in the number The base of the number system (where base is defined as the total number of digits available in the number system).

Decimal Number System


The number system that we use in our day-to-day life is the decimal number system. Decimal number system has base 10 as it uses 10 digits from 0 to 9. In decimal number system, the successive positions to the left of the decimal point represent units, tens, hundreds, thousands and so on. Each position represents a specific power of the base (10). For example, the decimal number 1234 consists of the digit 4 in the units position, 3 in the tens position, 2 in the hundreds position, and 1 in the thousands position, and its value can be written as (1x1000) + (2x100) + (3x10) + (4xl) (1x103) + (2x102) + (3x101) + (4xl00) 1000 + 200 + 30 + 1 1234 As a computer programmer or an IT professional, you should understand the following number systems which are frequently used in computers.

Base 10 to Base N Conversion


Steps Step 1 - Divide the decimal number to be converted by the value of the new base. Step 2 - Get the remainder from Step 1 as the rightmost digit (least significant digit) of new base number. Step 3 - Divide the quotient of the previous divide by the new base. Step 4 - Record the remainder from Step 3 as the next digit (to the left) of the new base number.

Repeat Steps 3 and 4, getting remainders from right to left, until the quotient becomes zero in Step 3. The last remainder thus obtained will be the most significant digit (MSD) of the new base number.

Example
Decimal Number: 2910 Calculating Binary Equivalent: Step Step 1 Step 2 Step 3 Step 4 Step 5 Operation 29 / 2 14 / 2 7/2 3/2 1/2 Result 14 7 3 1 0 Remainder 1 0 1 1 1

As mentioned in Steps 2 and 4, the remainders have to be arranged in the reverse order so that the first remainder becomes the least significant digit (LSD) and the last remainder becomes the most significant digit (MSD). Decimal Number: 2910 = Binary Number: 111012.

Binary Codes
This section describes various popular Binary Code formats.

n the coding, when numbers, letters or words are represented by a specific group of

symbols, it is said that the number, letter or word is being encoded. The group of symbols is called as a code. The digital data is represented, stored and transmitted as group of binary bits. This group is also called as binary code. The binary code is represented by the number as well as alphanumeric letter.

Advantages of Binary Code


Following is the list of advantages that binary code offers. Binary codes are suitable for the computer applications. Binary codes are suitable for the digital communications. Binary codes make the analysis and designing of digital circuits if we use the binary codes. Since only 0 & 1 are being used, implementation becomes easy.

Classification of binary codes


The codes are broadly categorized into following four categories. Weighted Codes Non-Weighted Codes Binary Coded Decimal Code Alphanumeric Codes Error Detecting Codes Error Correcting Codes

Weighted Codes
Weighted binary codes are those binary codes which obey the positional weight principle. Each position of the number represents a specific weight. Several systems of the codes are used to express the decimal digits 0 through 9. In these codes each decimal digit is represented by a group of four bits.

Non-Weighted Codes
In this type of binary codes, the positional weights are not assigned. The examples of nonweighted codes are Excess-3 code and Gray code.

Excess-3 Code
The Excess-3 code is also called as XS-3 code. It is non-weighted code used to express decimal numbers. The Excess-3 code words are derived from the 8421 BCD code words adding (0011)2 or (3)10 to each code word in 8421. The excess-3 codes are obtained as follows

Gray Code
It is the non-weighted code and it is not arithmetic codes. That means there are no specific weights assigned to the bit position. It has a very special feature that has only one bit will change, each time the decimal number is incremented as shown in fig. As only one bit changes at a time, the gray code is called as a unit distance code. The gray code is a cyclic code. Gray code cannot be used for arithmetic operation.

Applications of Gray Code


Gray code is popularly used in the shaft position encoders. A shaft position encoder produces a code word which represents the angular position of the shaft.

Binary Coded Decimal (BCD) code


In this code each decimal digit is represented by a 4-bit binary number. BCD is a way to express each of the decimal digits with a binary code. In the BCD, with four bits we can represent sixteen numbers (0000 to 1111). But in BCD code only first ten of these are used (0000 to 1001). The remaining six code combinations i.e. 1010 to 1111 are invalid in BCD.

Advantages of BCD Code


It is very similar to decimal system. We need to remember binary equivalent of decimal numbers 0 to 9 only.

Disadvantages of BCD Code


The addition and subtraction of BCD have different rules. The BCD arithmetic is little more complicated. BCD needs more number of bits than binary to represent the decimal number. So BCD is less efficient than binary.

Alphanumeric codes
A binary digit or bit can represent only two symbols as it has only two states '0' or '1'. But this is not enough for communication between two computers because there we need many more symbols for communication. These symbols are required to represent 26 alphabets with capital and small letters, numbers from 0 to 9, punctuation marks and other symbols. The alphanumeric codes are the codes that represent numbers and alphabetic characters. Mostly such codes also represent other characters such as symbol and various instructions necessary for conveying information. An alphanumeric code should at least represent 10 digits and 26 letters of alphabet i.e. total 36 items. The following three alphanumeric codes are very commonly used for the data representation. American Standard Code for Information Interchange (ASCII). Extended Binary Coded Decimal Interchange Code (EBCDIC). Five bit Baudot Code.

ASCII code is a 7-bit code whereas EBCDIC is an 8-bit code. ASCII code is more commonly used worldwide while EBCDIC is used primarily in large IBM computers.

Error Codes
There are binary code techniques available to detect and correct data during data transmission.

Error Detection and Correction


Error means a condition when output information is not same as input information. When transmission of digital signals takes place between two systems such as a computer, the transmitted signal is combined with the "Noise". The noise can introduce an error in the binary bits travelling from one system to other. That means 0 may change to 1 or a 1 may change to 0.

Error Detecting codes


Whenever a message is transmitted then there are changes that it get scrambled by noise or data gets corrupted. When we add some additional data to a given digital message which can help us to detect if an error occurred during transmission of the message then adding such data is called an error-detecting code. A simple example of error-detecting code is parity check.

Error Correcting codes


Along with Error detecting code, we can also pass some data which help to figure out the original message from the corrupt message that we received. This type of code is called an errorcorrecting code. Error correcting codes also deploys the same strategy as error detecting codes but additionally, such codes also detects the exact location of corrupt bit. In error correcting code, parity check has simple way to detect error along with a sophisticated mechanism to determine the corrupt bit location. Once corrupt bit is located, its value is reverted (from 0 to 1 or 1 to 0) to get the original message.

How to detect and correct errors?


For the detection and correction of these errors, one or more than one extra bits are added to the data bits at the time transmitting. These extra bits are called as parity bits. They allow detection or correction of the errors. The data bits along with the parity bits form a code word.

TUTORIALS POINT Simply Easy Learning

Page 24

Parity checking of error detection


It is a simplest technique for detecting and correcting error. In the MSB of an 8-bits word is used as the parity bit and the remaining 7 bits are used as data or message bits. The parity of 8-bits transmitted word can be either even parity or odd parity.

Even parity -- Even parity means the number of 1's in the given word including the parity bit should be even (2,4,6,....). Odd parity -- Odd parity means the number of 1's in the given word including the parity bit should be odd (1,3,5,....).

Use of Parity Bit


The parity bit can be set to 0 and 1 depending on the type of the parity required. For even parity this bit is set to 1 or 0 such that the no. of "1 bits" in the entire word is even. Show in the fig. (a). For odd parity this bit is set to 1 or 0 such that the no. of "1 bits" in the entire word is odd. Show in the fig. (b).

TUTORIALS POINT Simply Easy Learning

Page 25

How does error detection take place?


The parity checking at the receiver can detect the presence of an error if the parity of the receiver signal is different from the expect parity. That means if is known that the parity of the transmitted signal is always going to be "even" and if the received signal has an odd parity then the receiver can conclude that the received signal is not correct. If presence of error is detected then the receiver will ignore the received byte and request for retransmission of the same byte to the transmitter.

Boolean Algebra
This section describes various mathematic laws of Boolean algebra.
Boolean Algebra is used to analyze and simplify the digital (logic) circuits. It uses only the binary numbers i.e. 0 and 1. It is also called as Binary Algebra or logical Algebra. Boolean algebra was invented by George Boole in 1854.

Rule in Boolean algebra


Following are the important rules used in Boolean algebra. Variable used can have only two values. Binary 1 for HIGH and Binary 0 for LOW. Complement of a variable is represented by an over bar (-). Thus complement of variable B is represented as . Thus if B = 0 then = 1 and B = 1 then = 0.

ORing of the variables is represented by a plus (+) sign between them. For example ORing of A, B, C is represented as A + B + C. Logical ANDing of the two or more variable is represented by writing a dot between them such as A.B.C. Sometime the dot may be omitted like ABC.

Boolean Laws
There are six types of Boolean Laws.

COMMUTATIVE LAW
Any binary operation which satisfies the following expression is referred to as commutative operation

Commutative law states that changing the sequence of the variables does not have any effect on the output of a logic circuit.

TUTORIALS POINT Simply Easy Learning

Page 45

ASSOCIATIVE LAW
This law states that the order in which the logic operations are performed is irrelevant as their effect is the same.

DISTRIBUTIVE LAW
Distributive law states the following condition.

AND LAW
These laws use the AND operation. Therefore they are called as AND laws.

OR LAW
These laws use the OR operation. Therefore they are called as OR laws.

INVERSION LAW
This law uses the NOT operation. The inversion law states that double inversion of a variable result in the original variable itself.

Important Boolean Theorems


Following are few important Boolean functions and theorems.

Boolean Expression/Function
Boolean algebra deals with binary variables and logic operation. A Boolean Function is described by an algebraic expression called Boolean expression which consists of binary variables, the constants 0 and 1 and the logic operation symbols. Consider the following example

Here the left side of the equation represents the output Y. So we can state equation no. 1

Truth Table Formation


A truth table represents a table having all combinations of inputs and their corresponding result. It is possible to convert the switching equation into a truth table. For example consider the following switching equation.

The output will be high (1) if A = 1 or BC = 1 or both are 1. The truth table for this equation is shown by Table (a). The number of rows in the truth table is 2 n where n is the number of input variables (n=3 for the given equation). Hence there are 2 3 = 8 possible input combination of inputs.

Methods to simplify the Boolean function


The methods used for simplifying the Boolean function are as follows. Karnaugh-map or K-map. NAND gate method

Karnaugh-map or K-map
The Boolean theorems and De-Morgan's theorems are useful in manipulating the logic expression. We can realize the logical expression using gates. The no. of logic gates required for the realization of a logical expression should be reduced to minimum possible value by K-map method. This method can be used by two ways.

SUM OF PRODUCTS (SOP) FORM


It is in the form of sum of three terms AB, AC, BC with each individual term is product of two variables. Say A.B or A.C etc. Therefore such expressions are known as expression in SOP form. The sum and products in SOP form are not the actual additions or multiplications. In fact they are the OR and AND functions. In SOP form, 0 is represent for bar and 1 is represent for unbar. SOP form is represented by Example of SOP is as follows. .

N-Bit Parallel Subtractor


The subtraction can be carried out by taking the 1's or 2's complement of the number to be subtracted. For example we can perform the subtraction (A-B) by adding either 1's or 2's complement of B to A. That means we can use a binary adder to perform the binary subtraction.

4 Bit Parallel Subtractor


The number to be subtracted (B) is first passed through inverters to obtain its 1's complement. The 4-bit adder then adds A and 2's complement of B to produce the subtraction. S3 S2 S1 S0 represents the result of binary subtraction (A-B) and carry output Cout represents the polarity of the result. If A > B then Cout =0 and the result of binary form (A-B) then Cout = 1 and the result is in the 2's complement form.

Depending on the digital code applied at the selected inputs, one out of n data sources is selected and transmitted to the single output Y. E is called the strobe or enable input which is useful for the cascading. It is generally an active low terminal, which means it will perform the required operation when it is low.

This is a special type of encoder. Priority is given to the input lines. If two or more input line are 1 at the same time, then the input line with highest priority will be considered. There are four input D0, D1, D2, D3 and two output Y0, Y1. Out of the four inputs D3 has the highest priority and D0 has the lowest priority. That means if D3 = 1 then Y1 Y1 = 11 irrespective of the other inputs. Similarly if D3 = 0 and D2= 1 then Y1 Y0 = 10 irrespective of the other inputs.

he combinational circuit does not use any memory. Hence the previous state of input does

not have any effect on the present state of the circuit. But sequential circuit has memory so output can vary based on input. This type of circuits uses previous input, output, clock and a memory element.

Flip Flop
Flip flop is a sequential circuit which generally samples its inputs and changes its outputs only at particular instants of time and not continuously. Flip flop is said to be edge sensitive or edge triggered rather than being level triggered like latches.

S-R Flip Flop


It is basically S-R latch using NAND gates with an additional enable input. It is also called as level triggered SR-FF. For this circuit in output will take place if and only if the enable input (E) is made active. In short this circuit will operate as an S-R latch if E= 1 but there is no change in the output if E = 0.

Operation
S.N. Condition Operation

If S = R = 0 then output of NAND gates 3 and 4 are forced to become 1.

S = R = 0 : No change Hence R' and S' both will be equal to 1. Since S' and R' are the input of the basic S-R latch using NAND gates, there will be no change in the state of outputs.

2 S = 0, R = 1, E = 1

Since S = 0, output of NAND-3 i.e. R' = 1 and E = 1 the output of NAND4 i.e. S' = 0. Hence Qn+1 = 0 and Qn+1 bar = 1. This is reset condition. Output of NAND-3 i.e. R' = 0 and output of NAND-4 i.e. S' = 1. Hence output of S-R NAND latch is Qn+1 = 1 and Qn+1 bar = 0. This is the reset condition. As S = 1, R = 1 and E = 1, the output of NAND gates 3 and 4 both are 0 i.e. S' = R' = 0. Hence the Race condition will occur in the basic NAND latch.

Master Slave JK Flip Flop


Master slave JK FF is a cascade of two S-R FF with feedback from the output of second to input of first. Master is a positive level triggered. But due to the presence of the inverter in the clock line, the slave will respond to the negative level. Hence when the clock = 1 (positive level) the master is active and the slave is inactive. Whereas when clock = 0 (low level) the slave is active and master is inactive.

Operation
S.N. Condition Operation

1 J = K = 0 (No change)

When clock = 0, the slave becomes active and master is inactive. But since the S and R inputs have not changed, the slave outputs will also remain unchanged. Therefore outputs will not change if J = K =0.


2 J = 0 and K = 1 (Reset)

Clock = 1: Master active, slave inactive. Therefore outputs of the master become Q1 = 0 and Q1 bar = 1. That means S = 0 and R =1. Clock = 0: Slave active, master inactive Therefore outputs of the slave become Q = 0 and Q bar = 1. Again clock = 1: Master active, slave inactive. Therefore even with the changed outputs Q = 0 and Q bar = 1 fed back to master, its outputs will Q1 = 0 and Q1 bar = 1. That means S = 0 and R = 1.

Page 78

Hence with clock = 0 and slave becoming active the outputs of slave will remain Q = 0 and Q bar = 1. Thus we get a stable output from the Master slave.


3 J = 1 and K = 0 (Set)

Clock = 1: Master active, slave inactive. Therefore outputs of the master become Q1 = 1 and Q1 bar = 0. That means S = 1 and R =0. Clock = 0: Slave active, master inactive Therefore outputs of the slave become Q = 1 and Q bar = 0. Again clock = 1: then it can be shown that the outputs of the slave are stabilized to Q = 1 and Q bar = 0.


4 J = K = 1 (Toggle)

Clock = 1: Master active, slave inactive. Outputs of master will toggle. So S and R also will be inverted. Clock = 0: Slave active, master inactive. Outputs of slave will toggle. These changed output are returned back to the master inputs. But since clock = 0, the master is still inactive. So it does not respond to these changed outputs. This avoids the multiple toggling which leads to the race around condition. The master slave flip flop will avoid the race around condition.

Delay Flip Flop / D Flip Flop


Delay Flip Flop or D Flip Flop is the simple gated S-R latch with a NAND inverter connected between S and R inputs. It has only one input. The input data is appearing at the output after some time. Due to this data delay between i/p and o/p, it is called delay flip flop. S and R will be the complements of each other due to NAND inverter. Hence S = R = 0 or S = R = 1, these input condition will never appear. This problem is avoid by SR = 00 and SR = 1 conditions.

Digital Registers
This section describes various digital registers.

lip-flop is a 1 bit memory cell which can be used for storing the digital data. To increase the

storage capacity in terms of number of bits, we have to use a group of flip-flop. Such a group of flip-flop is known as a Register. The n-bit register will consist of n number of flip-flop and it is capable of storing an n-bit word. The binary data in a register can be moved within the register from one flip-flop to another. The registers that allow such data transfers are called as shift registers. There are four mode of operation of a shift register.

Let all the flip-flop be initially in the reset condition i.e. Q3 = Q2 = Q1 = Q0 = 0. If we entry of a four bit binary number 1 1 1 1 into the register. When this is to be done, this number should be applied to Dinbit by with the LSB bit applied first. The D input of FF-3 i.e. D3 is connected to serial data input Din. Output of FF-3 i.e. Q3 is connected to the input of the next flip-flop i.e. D2 and so on.

Block Diagram

Operation
Before application of clock signal let Q3 Q2 Q1 Q0 = 0000 and apply LSB bit of the number to be entered to Din. So Din=D3=1. Apply the clock. On the first falling edge of clock, the FF-3 is set, and stored word in the register is Q3 Q2 Q1 Q0 = 1000.

Apply the next bit to Din. So Din=1. As soon as the next negative edge of the clock hits, FF-2 will set and the stored word change to Q3 Q2 Q1 Q0 = 1100.

Apply the next bit to be stored i.e. 1 to Din. Apply the clock pulse. As soon as the third negative clock edge hits, FF-1 will be set and output will be modified to Q3 Q2 Q1 Q0 = 1110.

Similarly with Din=1 and with the fourth negative clock edge arriving, the stored word in the register is Q3 Q2 Q1 Q0 = 1111.

Serial Input Parallel Output


In such types of operations, the data is entered serially and taken out in parallel fashion. Data is loaded bit by bit. The outputs are disabled as long as the data is loading. As soon as the data loading gets completed, all the flip-flops contain their required data, the outputs are enabled so that all the loaded data is made available over all the output lines at the same time. 4 clock cycles are required to load a four bit word. Hence the speed of operation of SIPO mode is same as that of SISO mode.

Parallel Input Serial Output (PISO)


Data bits are entered in parallel fashion. The circuit shown below is a four bit parallel input serial output register. Output of previous Flip Flop is connected to the input of the next one via a combinational circuit. The binary input word B0, B1, B2, B3 is applied though the same combinational circuit. There are two modes in which this circuit can work namely shift mode or load mode.

Load Mode
When the shift/load bar line is low (0), the AND gate 2, 4 and 6 become active. They will pass B1, B2, B3 bits to the corresponding flip-flops. On the low going edge of clock, the binary input B 0, B1, B2, B3 will get loaded into the corresponding flip-flops. Thus parallel loading takes place.

Shift Mode
When the shift/load bar line is low (1), the AND gate 2,4 and 6 become inactive. Hence the parallel loading of the data becomes impossible. But the AND gate 1,3 and 5 become active. Therefore the shifting of data from left to right bit by bit on application of clock pulses. Thus the parallel in serial out operation take place.

In this mode, the 4 bit binary input B 0, B1, B2, B3 is applied to the data inputs D0, D1, D2, D3 respectively of the four flip-flops. As soon as a negative clock edge is applied, the input binary bits will be loaded into the flip-flops simultaneously. The loaded bits will appear simultaneously to the output side. Only clock pulse is essential to load all the bits.

Bidirectional Shift Register


If a binary number is shifted left by one position then it is equivalent to multiplying the original number by 2. Similarly if a binary number is shifted right by one position then it is equivalent to dividing the original number by 2. Hence if we want to use the shift register to multiply and divide the given binary number, then we should be able to move the data in either left or right direction. Such a register is called as a bi-directional register. A four bit bi-directional shift register is shown in fig. There are two serial inputs namely the serial right shift data input DR and the serial left shift data input DL along with a mode select input (M).

Block Diagram

Operation
S.N. Condition Operation

1 With M = 1 : Shift right operation

If M = 1, then the AND gates 1,3,5 and 7 are enable whereas the remaining AND gates 2,4,6 and 8 will be disabled. The data at DR is shifted to right bit by bit from FF-3 to FF-0 on the application of clock pulses. Thus with M = 1 we get the serial right shift operation. When the mode control M is connected to 0 then the AND gates 2,4,6 and 8 are enabled while 1,3,5 and 7 are disabled. The data at DL is shifted left bit by bit from FF-0 to FF-3 on the application of clock pulses. Thus with M = 0 we get the serial right shift operation.

Universal Shift Register


A shift register which can shift the data in only one direction is called a uni-directional shift register. A shift register which can shift the data in both directions is called a bi-directional shift register. Applying the same logic, a shift register which can shift the data in both directions as well as load it parallel, then it is known as a universal shift register. The shift register is capable of performing the following operation Parallel loading Lift shifting Right shifting

The mode control input is connected to logic 1 for parallel loading operation whereas it is connected to 0 for serial shifting. With mode control pin connected to ground, the universal shift register acts as a bi-directional register. For serial left operation, the input is applied to the serial input which goes to AND gate-1 shown in figure. Whereas for the shift right operation, the serial input is applied to D input.

ounter is a sequential circuit. A digital circuit which is used for counting pulses is known

Asynchronous or ripple counters


The logic diagram of a 2-bit ripple up counter is shown in figure. The toggle (T) flip-flop are being used. But we can use the JK flip-flop also with J and K connected permanently to logic 1. External clock is applied to the clock input of flip-flop A and QA output is applied to the clock input of the next flip-flop i.e. FF-B.

Logical Diagram

Operation
S.N. Condition 1 Operation Initially let both the FFs be in the reset state QBQA = 00................initially


2 After 1st negative clock edge

As soon as the first negative clock edge is applied, FF-A will toggle and QA will be equal to 1. QA is connected to clock input of FF-B. Since QA has changed from 0 to 1, it is treated as the positive clock edge by FF-B. There is no change in QB because FF-B is a negative edge triggered FF. QBQA = 01................After the first clock pulse


3 After 2nd negative clock edge

On the arrival of second negative clock edge, FF-A toggles again and QA = 0. The change in QA acts as a negative clock edge for FF-B. So it will also toggle, and QB will be 1. QBQA = 10................After the second clock pulse


4 After 3rd negative clock edge

On the arrival of 3rd negative clock edge, FF-A toggles again and QA become 1 from 0. Since this is a positive going change,FF-B does not respond to it and remains inactive. So QB does not change and continues to be equal to 1. QBQA = 11................After the third clock pulse

After 4th negative clock edge

On the arrival of 4th negative clock edge, FF-A

As soon as the first negative clock edge is applied, FF-A will toggle and QA will change from 0 to 1. But at the instant of application of negative clock edge, QA ,JB = KB =0 Hence FF-B will not change its state. So QB will remain 0. QBQA = 01................After the first clock pulse


3 After 2nd negative clock edge

On the arrival of second negative clock edge, FF-A toggles again and QA change from 1 to 0. But at this instant QA was 1. So JB = KB=1 and FF-B will toggle. Hence QB changes from 0 to 1. QBQA = 10................After the second clock pulse

Classification of counters
Depending on the way in which the counting progresses, the synchronous or asynchronous counters are classified as follows. Up counters Down counters Up/Down counters

UP/DOWN Counter
In the up/down counter, when up counter and down counter combined together to obtain an UP/DOWN counter. A mode control (M) input is also provided to select either up or down mode. A combinational circuit is required to be designed and used between each pair of flip-flop in order to achieve the up/down operation. Type of up/down counters UP/DOWN ripple counters UP/DOWN synchronous counters

UP/DOWN Ripple Counters


In the UP/DOWN ripple counter all the FFs operate in the toggle mode. So either T flip-flops or JK flip-flops are to be used. The LSB flip-flop receives clock directly. But the clock to every other FF is obtained from (Q = Q bar) output of the previous FF. UP counting mode (M=0) - The Q output of the preceding FF is connected to the clock of the next stage if up counting is to be achieved. For this mode, the mode select input M is at logic 0 (M=0). DOWN counting mode (M=1) - If M =1, then the Q bar output of the preceding FF is connected to the next FF. This will operate the counter in the counting mode.

Example
3-bit binary up/down ripple counter. 3-bit: hence three FFs are required. UP/DOWN: So a mode control input is essential. For a ripple up counter, the Q output of preceding FF is connected to the clock input of the next one. For a ripple up counter, the Q output of preceding FF is connected to the clock input of the next one.

For a ripple down counter, the Q bar output of preceding FF is connected to the clock input of the next one. Let the selection of Q and Q bar output of the preceding FF be controlled by the mode control input M such that, If M = 0, UP counting. So connect Q to CLK. If M = 1, DOWN counting. So connect Q bar to CLK

S.N. Condition Operation

If M = 0 and M bar = 1, then the AND gates 1 and 3 in fig. will be enabled whereas the AND gates 2 and 4 will be disabled. Hence QA gets connected to the clock input of FFB and QB gets connected to the clock input of FFC. These connections are same as those for the normal up counter. Thus with M = 0 the circuit work as an up counter.

Memory Devices
This section describes various types of Memory Devices.

memory is just like a human brain. It is used to store data and instruction. Computer

memory is the storage space in computer where data is to be processed and instructions required for processing are stored. The memory is divided into large number of small parts. Each part is called cell. Each location or cell has a unique address which varies from zero to memory size minus one. For example if computer has 64k words, then this memory unit has 64 * 1024=65536 memory location. The address of these locations varies from 0 to 65535. Memory is primarily of two types Internal Memory - cache memory and primary/main memory External Memory - magnetic disk / optical disk etc.

TUTORIALS POINT Simply Easy Learning

Page 101

Characteristics of Memory Hierarchy are following when we go from top to bottom. Capacity in terms of storage increases. Cost per bit of storage decreases. Frequency of access of the memory by the CPU decreases. Access time by the CPU increases

RAM
A RAM constitutes the internal memory of the CPU for storing data, program and program result. It is read/write memory. It is called random access memory (RAM). Since access time in RAM is independent of the address to the word that is, each storage location inside the memory is as easy to reach as other location & takes the same amount of time. We can reach into the memory at random & extremely fast but can also be quite expensive. RAM is volatile, i.e. data stored in it is lost when we switch off the computer or if there is a power failure. Hence a backup uninterruptible power system(UPS) is often used with computers. RAM is small, both in terms of its physical size and in the amount of data it can hold. RAM is of two types Static RAM (SRAM) Dynamic RAM (DRAM)

Static RAM (SRAM)


The word static indicates that the memory retains its contents as long as power remains applied. However, data is lost when the power gets down due to volatile nature. SRAM chips use a matrix of 6-transistors and no capacitors. Transistors do not require power to prevent leakage, so SRAM need not have to be refreshed on a regular basis. Because of the extra space in the matrix, SRAM uses more chips than DRAM for the same amount of storage space, thus making the manufacturing costs higher. Static RAM is used as cache memory needs to be very fast and small.

Dynamic RAM (DRAM)


DRAM, unlike SRAM, must be continually refreshed in order for it to maintain the data. This is done by placing the memory on a refresh circuit that rewrites the data several hundred times per second. DRAM is used for most system memory because it is cheap and small. All DRAMs are made up of memory cells. These cells are composed of one capacitor and one transistor.

Page 102

ROM
ROM stands for Read Only Memory. The memory from which we can only read but cannot write on it. This type of memory is non-volatile. The information is stored permanently in such memories during manufacture. A ROM, stores such instruction as are required to start computer when electricity is first turned on, this operation is referred to as bootstrap. ROM chip are not only used in the computer but also in other electronic items like washing machine and microwave oven. Following are the various types of ROM

MROM (Masked ROM)


The very first ROMs were hard-wired devices that contained a pre-programmed set of data or instructions. These kinds of ROMs are known as masked ROMs. It is inexpensive ROM.

PROM (Programmable ROM)


PROM is read-only memory that can be modified only once by a user. The user buys a blank PROM and enters the desired contents using a PROM programmer. Inside the PROM chip there are small fuses which are burnt open during programming. It can be programmed only once and is not erasable.

EPROM (Erasable and Programmable ROM)


The EPROM can be erased by exposing it to ultra-violet light for duration of up to 40 minutes. Usually, a EPROM eraser achieves this function. During programming an electrical charge is trapped in an insulated gate region. The charge is retained for more than ten years because the charge has no leakage path. For erasing this charge, ultra-violet light is passed through a quartz crystal window (lid). This exposure to ultra-violet light dissipates the charge. During normal use the quartz lid is sealed with a sticker.

EEPROM (Electrically Erasable and Programmable ROM)


The EEPROM is programmed and erased electrically. It can be erased and reprogrammed about ten thousand times. Both erasing and programming take about 4 to 10 ms (milli second). In EEPROM, any location can be selectively erased and programmed. EEPROMs can be erased one byte at a time, rather than erasing the entire chip. Hence, the process of re-programming is flexible but slow.

Serial Access Memory


Sequential access means the system must search the storage device from the beginning of the memory address until it finds the required piece of data. Memory device which supports such access is called a Sequential Access Memory or Serial Access Memory. Magnetic tape is an example of serial access memory.

Direct Access Memory


Direct access memory or Random Access Memory, refers to condition in which a system can go directly to the information that the user wants. Memory device which supports such access is called a Direct Access Memory. Magnetic disk, optical disks are an examples of direct access memory.

Cache Memory
Cache memory is a very high speed semiconductor memory which can speed up CPU. It acts as a buffer between the CPU and main memory. It is used to hold those parts of data and program which are most frequently used by CPU. The parts of data and programs are transferred from disk to cache memory by operating system, from where CPU can access them.

Advantages
Cache memory is faster than main memory. It consumes less access time as compared to main memory. It stores the program that can be executed within a short period of time. It stores data for temporary use.

Disadvantages
Cache memory has limited capacity. It is very expensive. Virtual memory is a technique that allows the execution of processes which are not completely available in memory. The main visible advantage of this scheme is that programs can be larger than physical memory. Virtual memory is the separation of user logical memory from physical memory. This separation allows an extremely large virtual memory to be provided for programmers when only a smaller physical memory is available. Following are the situations, when entire program is not required to be loaded fully in main memory. User written error handling routines are used only when an error occurred in the data or computation. Certain options and features of a program may be used rarely.

TUTORIALS POINT Simply Easy Learning

Page 104

Many tables are assigned a fixed amount of address space even though only a small amount of the table is actually used. The ability to execute a program that is only partially in memory would counter many benefits. Less number of I/O would be needed to load or swap each user program into memory. A program would no longer be constrained by the amount of physical memory that is available. Each user program could take less physical memory; more programs could be run the same time, with a corresponding increase in CPU utilization and throughput.

Auxiliary Memory
Auxiliary memory is much larger in size than main memory but is slower. It normally stores system programs, instruction and data files. It is also known as secondary memory. It can also be used as an overflow/virtual memory in case the main memory capacity has been exceeded. Secondary memories cannot be accessed directly by a processor. First the data / information of auxiliary memory is transferred to the main memory and then that information can be accessed by the CPU. Characteristics of Auxiliary Memory are following Non-volatile memory - Data is not lost when power is cut off. Reusable - The data stays in the secondary storage on permanent basis until it is not overwritten or deleted by the user. Reliable - Data in secondary storage is safe because of high physical stability of secondary storage device. Convenience - With the help of computer software, authorized people can locate and access the data quickly. Capacity - Secondary storage can store large volumes of data in sets of multiple disks. Cost - It is much lesser expensive to store data on a tape or disk than primary memory.

It is used to store the execution address. The function of the program counter is to point to memory address from which next bytes is to be fetched. Storage registers -- These registers store 8-bit data during a program execution. These register are identified as B,C,D,E,H,L.

This unit is responsible to synchronize Microprocessor operation as per the clock pulse and to generate the control signals which are necessary for smooth communication between Microprocessor and peripherals devices. The RD bar and WR bar signal are synchronous pulses which indicates whether data is available on the data bus or not. The control unit is responsible to control the flow of data between microprocessor, memory and peripheral devices.

Pin Diagram

The entire signal can be classified into six groups: S.N. Group Description

1 Address bus

The 8085 microprocessor has 8 signal line, A15 A8 which are unidirectional & used as a high order address bus. The signal line AD7 - AD0 are bidirectional for dual purpose. They are used as low order address bus as well as data bus.

2 Data bus

Control Signal 3 Control signal and Status signal RD bar - It is a read control signal (active low). It is active then memory read the data. WR bar - It is write control signal (active low). It is active when written into selected memory.

Status signal

ALU (Address Latch Enable) - When ALU is high. 8085 microprocessor is use address bus. When ALU is low. 8085 microprocessor is use data bus. IO/M bar - This is a status signal used to differentiate between i/o and memory operation. When it is high, it indicate an i/o operation and low, it indicate memory operation. S1 and S0 - These status signal, similar to i/o and memory bar, can identify various operation, but they are rarely used in small system.

Vcc - +5v power supply. Vss - ground reference. X, X - A crystal is connected at these two pins. The Power supply and frequency signal frequency is internally divided by two operate system at 3-MHz, the crystal should have a frequency of 6-MHz. CLK out - This signal can be used as the system clock for other devices.


5 Externally initiated signal

INTR(i/p) - Interrupt request. INTA bar (o/p) - It is used as acknowledge interrupt. TRAP(i/p) - This is non maskable interrupt and has highest priority. HOLD(i/p) - It is used to hold the executing program. HLDA(o/p) - Hold acknowledge. READY(i/p) - This signal is used to delay the microprocessor read or write cycle until a slow responding peripheral is ready to accept or send data. RESET IN bar - When the signal on this pin goes low, the program counter is set to zero, the bus are tri-stated, & MPU is reset. RESET OUT - This signal indicate that MPU is being reset. The signal can be used to reset other devices. RST 7.5, RST 6.5, RST 5.5 (Request interrupt) - It is used to transfer the program control to specific memory location. They have higher priority than INTR interrupt. The 8085 microprocessor has two signals to implement the serial transmission serial input data and serial output data.

6 Serial I/O ports

Instruction Format
Each instruction is represented by a sequence of bits within the computer. The instruction is divided into group of bits called field. The way of instruction is expressed is known as instruction format. It is usually represented in the form of rectangular box. The instruction format may be of the following types.

Variable Instruction Formats


These are the instruction formats in which the instruction length varies on the basis of opcode & address specifiers. For Example, VAX instruction varies between 1 and 53 bytes while X86 instruction vary between 1 and 17 bytes.

Format Advantage
These formats have good code density.

Drawback
These instruction formats are very difficult to decode & pipeline.

Fixed Instruction Formats


In this type of instruction format, all instruction are same size. For Example, MIPS, Power PC, Alpha, ARM.

Format

Advantage
They are easy to decode & pipeline.

Drawback
They don't have as good code density.

Hybrid Instruction Formats


In this type of instruction formats, we have multiple format length specified by opcode. For example, IBM 360/70, MIPS 16, and Thumb.

Format

Advantage
These compromises between code density & instruction of this type are very easy to decode.

Addressing Modes
Addressing mode provide different ways for access an address to given data to a processor. Operated data is stored in the memory location, each instruction required certain data on which it has operate. There are various techniques to specify address of data. These technique are called Addressing Modes. Direct addressing mode - In the direct addressing mode, address of the operand is given in the instruction and data is available in the memory location which is provided in instruction. We will move this data in desired location. Indirect addressing mode - In the indirect addressing mode, the instruction specifies a register which contain the address of the operand. Both internal RAM and external RAM can be access via indirect addressing mode. Immediate addressing mode - In the immediate addressing mode, direct data is given in the operand which moves the data in accumulator. It is very fast. Relative addressing mode - In the relative address mode, the effective address is determined by the index mode by using the program counter instead of general purpose processor register. This mode is called relative address mode. Index addressing mode - In the index address mode, the effective address of the operand is generated by adding a content value to the contents of the register. This mode is called index address mode.
